Responsibility of international organizations

The International Law Commission has so far provisionally adopted 30 draft articles on “Responsibility of international organizations”. These articles build up part one, entitled “The internationally wrongful act of an international organization”. They include an introduction (arts. 1–3) that considers the scope of the draft, defines the use of terms and states a few general principles. This introduction is followed by chapters on attribution of conduct to international organizations (arts. 4–7), breach of an international obligation (arts. 8–11), responsibility of an international organization in connection with the act of a State or another international organization (arts. 12–16), circumstances precluding wrongfulness (arts. 17–24) and responsibility of a State in connection with the act of an international organization (arts. 25–30).
